The ADCMA's 3rd Annual Banquet (2008)

Key Note Address: America's Middle East policy is being scrutinized heavily during this election season; getting it right has never been more important.  The risks in the region are exceedingly high, the challenges as great as ever, and the stakes are reaching new heights. Many questions abound: Do we "stay the course" in Iraq, for example, or do we change direction and find a different way forward?  If the latter option is to be pursued it will only come about because an informed public demands it of U.S. leadership. In assessing the way forward in the Middle East, we need to explore the responsibility of the American public in helping shape U.S. policy in the Middle East.

Dr. James Zogby: For the past three decades, Dr. Zogby has been involved in a full range of Arab American issues. A co-founder and chairman of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign in the later 1970s, he later co-founded and served as the Executive Director of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. In 1982, he co-founded Save Lebanon, Inc., a private non-profit, humanitarian and non-sectarian relief organization which funds health care for Palestinian and Lebanese victims of war, and other social welfare projects in Lebanon. in 1985, Zogby founded the Arab American Institute (AAI), a Washington DC-based organization which serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community, where Zogby currently serves as President.
